MAC MeetingsMAc meeting

Members meet three times a year. Meetings feature invited speakers. Each meeting includes an opportunity for members to update others about progress with their task forces. MAC meetings promote vigorous discussion and positive interactions, and the animals benefit as a result. For information from past meetings, visit this page.  To see a list of all past MAC meetings and topics, click here.
